Aerial and Boat Views of Amtrak Train Derailment, Mobile, Alabama
The videotape contains aerial views of the Amtrak train derailment scene taken on September 23, 1993 (one day after accident) from a United States Coast Guard (USCG) helicopter. The tape shows aerial views of the wreckage, crash scene, salvage efforts and diving operations. The video also contains footage taken from a USCG boat showing close-up views of wreckage, salvage and diving operations.
